6 Yummy Juice Recipes To Fight Acne

Simply getting your daily servings of various vitamins and minerals is great for your skin – and overall health – in general. But when it comes to acne, there are a few vitamins and minerals that especially help keep acne at bay…and some juice recipes for acne that combine those essential acne-fighting vitamins and minerals.

Fighting acne with vitamins and minerals – nature’s “medicines” is the only holistic, permanent acne solution I’ve found. Sure, prescription drugs might work for awhile, but ultimately, I don’t think they are worth the risk to other parts of the body (i.e. destroying the liver to clear the skin).

The juice recipes for acne below all have ample amounts of these vital vitamins and minerals – simply mix and match and drink for clearer skin!

Spicy Sweet Potato

The Spicy Sweet Potato is exactly what it sounds like: sweet potato with a bit of spicy zing from ginger. Both sweet potatoes and carrots are chock full of acne-fighting Vitamin A: Just ONE medium-sized sweet potato is 438% of your daily requirement.

These yummy tubers are also bursting with nutritious phytochemicals that have been shown to be effective in fighting cancer and have great immune-boosting properties. Carrots also hold their own in terms of Vitamin A content: one medium-sized carrot provides about 204% of your daily Vitamin A requirement.

Add a dash of cinnamon for extra spice!

Sweet Potato Cleanse

Here’s another juice recipe for acne featuring sweet potato and a bit of zing – but this time, the spicy zing comes from turmeric, which contains a compound called curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that’s been shown to have anti-bacterial effects even against the p. acnes bacteria. One study even found it to be 36 times stronger than azelaic acid!

Of course, that’s not all this juice recipe is packing – it’s got a whole lot of Vitamin A as well as heaps of minerals and cleansing prowess. On top of all that, it even tastes good 🙂

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 2 cups worth)
  • 2 inches turmeric root
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 lemon

Quick tip: Juice the turmeric root and lemon first so you can use the harder, bigger produce to push everything through!

The Kale Whale

best kale juice recipe

The Kale Whale packs a powerful nutrient punch, with kale and carrots for an intense dose of Vitamin A and an apple for a little bit of sweetness and a whole medley of vitamins.

Remember to leave the peel of your apple and cucumber on to take advantage of the important minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus, folate and iron as well as antioxidants Vitamins A and C) in apple peels, as well as the silica, potassium, and magnesium in cucumber peels!

Tart Green Juice

Here’s a super simple green juice you can whip up to fight acne – and there’s no excuses to not do it since it’s only 3 ingredients:

  • 1/2 large cucumber
  • 4 large stalks organic kale
  • 1/2 lemon

Yes, there’s no real sweetness in this but it’s the perfect juice to sip on throughout your day since it’s very, very low in calories and very, very cleansing. And no worries about it being too strong from the lemon or kale since the cucumber waters it down nicely. If it’s still too much for you, feel free to add in some water or coconut water.

Coco Splash

Coco Splash is not only absolutely delicious – it’s great for acne. Cantaloupe is a fantastic source of Vitamin A, providing 68% of your daily Vitamin A requirement per every 100g serving.

Coconut water is refreshing and wonderfully nourishing, containing a variety of both macro and micro elements, such as potassium, natirum, calcium, magnesium, iron, cuprum, phophorus, and sulfur.

Green Lemonade

juice recipes for acne

Green Lemonade is a veggie take on a classic juice. The cucumbers serve as a great, refreshing base full of silica and other nutrients and the kale provides a powerful dose of Vitamin A as well as Vitamin B2 that is great for decreasing stress (stress = more acne).

Lemons, of course, are chock full of Vitamin C – another “skin vitamin” to help your skin clear itself!

    Hi mariaan, I’ll be adding more juice recipes for acne later, but for now, I’d suggest juicing lots of dark, leafy greens, fruits and veggies that are high in vitamin A, as well as adding in a mineral-rich supplement to your diet, like wheat germ.
